That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  1996 Nissan Maxima.

View the tires Nissan recommends for 1996 Maximas, plus important information about Nissan Maxima tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Your vehicle can't drive correctly without the correct tires. As one of our tire technicians, Brianna, explains, "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Nissan Maxima tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for winter and one for summer. That way, they can maximize their Nissan Maxima's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Next, consider your driving style. Do you enjoy pushing your Nissan Maxima to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability in uneven road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Nissan Maxima tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 1996 Nissan Maxima tire for your needs.

Firestone Complete Auto Care has plenty of good Nissan Maxima tire brands for you to choose from. Firestone and Bridgestone are two of the most popular. Nissan Maxima Firestone tires are tires you can count on. Harvey Firestone started the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1900 in Akron, OH. He was a passionate inventor from the start. Firestone recognized the overwhelming potential for automobile tires, so he started producing and testing passenger, truck, and farm tires. One of the company's pioneering efforts was the introduction in 1908 of the first all-rubber, non-skid tire! Thanks to Harvey Firestone, Firestone Tires has been committed to staying ahead of the curve since day one. Today, Firestone is one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world. They make 8,000 different tires for all sorts of vehicles — including 1996 Nissan Maximas.

Bridgestone is another smart move for Nissan Maxima tires. In 1931, Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan.

Questions About 1996 Nissan Maxima Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Nissan Maxima tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why does Nissan tire inflation matter? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Maxima tires? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Nissan tire numbers.
  • Is there an easy way to check Nissan tire tread depth? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan Maxima tires.
